I would only change one thing of your post Sami is the worst mother on daytime EVER, she may even be in running for worst mother on television ever. Hell Roseanne was better than Sami. Sami pays no attention to her children unless it's to use them against their fathers, hell I'd be willing to watch her screech all the way through "NO MORE WIRE HANGERS" via Joan Crawford remake if it meant she actually thought about her children because she thought about them as her children not pawns or something in the way of sex with whom ever she's in the mood to screw. :sarcasm:

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
There is no sufficient reason to keep a child from his father. The argument that EJ is a bad father doesn't work because he has been a great father to Johnny and Sydney as of late. And he had no intention of taking the baby from Nicole. In the beginning he only asked her to raise the child with him. Nicole & Rafe had no logical reason to think EJ would take the child. And did Rafe ever consider the well-being of the child? What if the child got sick and needed blood? What then? They never considered what was best for the child. They used that child out of jealousy and spite - neither of which are sufficient reasons to lie about a child's paternity and both are downright hypocritical.
I think the argument that he's not a good father outweighs the argument that he's been good to his kids 'recently'. I can't see how a good father would be fine with having a criminal sleep in the same house with his children. I can't see a good father telling Sami to inform their cancer stricken son that she doesn't love him. I can't see a good father giving Sami custody paperwork to take Johnny away from her when he thought his daughter with Sami had died. I don't think a man that had grown close to Sydney thinking she was his daughter would call her 'that' and throw her out of the house when he thought she was Chad's kid. I don't think being a good father NOW negates some of these actions he's performed less than 2 years ago because any woman who had a kid with him could think that he could easily perpetrate those actions again toward her, or their child. That being said these women knew this about Ej and they still slept with him anyway. Maybe these women should just not open their legs for the guy, or at least use protection. That would ensure that they don't get pregnant and they don't have to hide their kid from the guy to begin with....
While I don't disagree with you about EJ having done some horrid things in regards to his kids in the past, while watching soaps sometimes suspending reality is necessary.
Holding EJ to that standard would mean holding everyone to an equal standard. That would mean that all Salem parents would suck. I can't say EJ is worse than Lucas and I like them equally.
Also Sami would have to be called the worst mother in Salem.
unless, of course we all decide to be biased lol. In which case anything goes.
What I am saying is that EJ as a father is pretty much on par with everyone else involved in this storyline - no worse, no better.
